    "The Struggle Will Be Lost" Lyrics

    Busta Rhymes feat. Carl Thomas

    Now this is the tale of a murderer
    who comes from the caucus cliffs
    [Busta in background] happy Thanksgiving
    he robbed and stole and killed for
    greed and packed us on slave ships
    [Busta in background] happy Thanksgiving
    he took us off to stolen lands it seemed like hell for sure
    [Busta in background] happy Thanksgiving
    with the crack and the guns,
    death and disease they called for you and your
    [Busta in background] happy Thanksgiving

    No whips no brew no weed to smoke not a single luxury
    If not for the bloodshed that it cost the struggle would be lost
    [Busta] say it again
    the struggle would be lost
    [Busta] say it again
    the struggle would be lost
    [Busta] say it again
    the struggle would be lost
    [Busta] say it again
    the struggle would be lost
    [Busta] say it again
    the struggle would be lost

    [Verse 1]
    The struggle will be lost
    If you continue to do the shit you be doin' with disloyalty nigga
    Now that explains why in each ward you avoiding me nigga
    Knowing now it takes nothing to be destroying a nigga

    Conditioned with a mind to shit on your brother
    Flossing with jewelry
    and whips just like a dick and still live with your mother
    Copping shit that superceded your salary
    Where is your loyalty to your own blood
    and taking care of your family
    Funny how you sit and drink what you drink
    Thinking the foulest shit and not even knowing
    why you think how you think
    Must be the reason why we aren't aware
    Because the devil know how guilty
    and filthy he is in all his affairs
    Fucking with my mind when I was a youngster
    Cause he know if we knew the truth
    we'd make his ass run from amongst us
    That's why we thinking that it's better to ball
    while the devil be sitting
    and watching plotting how to murder us all

    now this


    [Verse 2]
    Hey yo
    That's why I'm hustling harder
    Now I'm in a huddle seeing
    the struggle in my mother and father
    That's why my persona will come
    with such a karma to be getting this paper
    Cause I ain't with the slavery labor
    A lot of niggas in the hood probly relate to me greater
    than those that believe when they die
    they going to meet the creator that's crazy
    how we become slaves
    to mental death and power that comes
    with becoming even more of a dumber ass
    the devil robbing you blind
    concealing the truth from niggas
    while we be struggling they murder the mind
    the wickedness sneak on you
    quicker when they creep from behind
    continue to speak the truth ?til it weaken your spine
    now check it
    the jewel I give you be the beat the beat for the time
    you can't see it like you living on a street for the blind
    young whitty hustler niggas that stick with the grind
    fly cuisine food poisoned cause you eatin' the swine
    I stay struggling and doin' for delf
    Then I dig in my body deeper and do a little knowledge of self
    They wonder why they catch a nigga on the weed sell
    Better be careful what you saying on them e-mails
    Now listen
    They got your mind in a prison
    You can do whatever you want but focus if you desire to listen
    As I say it I hope you feelin' the wrath
    Create a hammer to make a man
    that a beat you in the head with the math
    Now this
